The 23-year-old has scored nine times and registered two assists in 24 Bundesliga appearances this season, piquing the interest of clubs around Europe.

According to Kicker, Spurs are weighing up a move for the versatile German as they look to bolster their squad for next season, following a second consecutive near miss in the Premier League title race.
